THE MESQUITE TREE

an American tragedy

Manuela gave birth to Fatima when she was fifteen. Fatima gave birth to Blanca when she was sixteen. Blanca gave birth to Carmel when she was fifteen. Carmel gave birth to Destiny when she was fourteen. Now Destiny is fifteen and Blanca wants more for her than a life lived as a single mother in a small house in a small town in the Rio Grande Valley with all of her abuelas. Can she break the cycle before it repeats again?
